Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Snowfall

Snowfall

I’ve always thought of the notion of a first snowfall as something magical and wonderous, though admittedly that’s partly due to having experienced so few in my lifetime. That said, there are quite a few free gifts waiting on the Christmas tree inside the Cosmopolitan Sales event, and these delicate snow flurries by Persefona are my favorite. For this look I also picked up the free Cosmo gifts by Limited Addiction, IDTTY, and ARTE. I also happen to be wearing a cute little sweater dress by Rebel Hope that you can find inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the details.

Persefona

These pretty little snow flurries are an attachment by Persefona. You can get them for free at the Cosmo event by joining the event group and clicking the stockings on the Christmas tree just inside the entrance. The Cosmopolitan Sales event group is free to join. This wintery gift includes a resizer hud that lets you easily adjust the size of the snowy attachment.

Limited Addiction

My sassy cute knee-high socks and ankle boots are also free at Cosmo, courtesy of Limited Addiction. You’ll find them waiting on the Christmas tree with the many other free gifts. These sassy holiday themed shoes come with a texture change hud for the socks that lets you pick from a few holiday color combinations.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy, Belleza Freya

IDTTY

Both my eye makeup and lip-color are part of the free Cosmo group gift by IDTTY. Their gift is a festive makeup “Jolly Days Collection” that includes 2 eye makeup looks, and 2 lipsticks. I’ve added the vendor photo below so you can get a look at both of these gorgeous holiday makeup looks.

Appliers Included: Genus, Catwa, Lelutka
IDTTY FACES - JOLLY DAYS

ARTE

Most skins include a browless option which makes experimenting with different brow shapes and colors a lot easier and more fun. The brows I’m wearing are the free Cosmo gift by ARTE. I think they look sleek and quite natural. In this free gift you’ll find BOM layer eyebrows in brown, light brown, dark brown, blond, red, and a tint-able version. Also there are Omega, and Catwa appliers, and a brow shaper included.

Rebel Hope

Finally, this pretty sweater dress is a Marketplace find by Rebel Hope. It’s just 25 linden and includes a color change hud for the ties and metal bits. If you’re interested in a color other than red, there are several to choose from. Each color is just 25 linden on the Marketplace.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh + Alpha Layer

Autumn Breeze

Autumn Breeze

As I’ve mentioned before I may not celebrate what at least in the U.S. is considered a traditional Thanksgiving, but I do believe very much in practicing thankfulness. I am thankful for autumn weather, for the beauty of the season, thankful for love, and for friendship. Honestly, the more I think on it, the more I have to be thankful for. That is a very beautiful and fortunate thing. I also am so thankful I have the opportunity to be here doing something I enjoy, sharing awesome finds with all of you.

Clawtooth

For this post I have some bitter-sweet news. Clawtooth is closing for good at the end of the month. Bubbles Clawtooth, the designer behind the store, sent out a lovely sentiment explaining their appreciation for all that Second Life has given them, and their carefully made decision to move away from Second Life and on to other projects. What does that mean for us? The entire Clawtooth store is on sale at 70% off from now through the end of November. I am not at all ashamed to admit I spent a few more lindens than I needed to picking up some of the lovely hairstyles that will be gone forever once Clawtooth closes. There is also a free holiday hairstyle with no group needed, and I saw at least one group gift. No group is required for the sale, and gachas are included. Most of the hairstyles appeared to be priced between 45 – 66 linden per color pack, and gachas were averaging at 25 linden per play.

Fabulously Free in SL Group Gifts

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to show off a few of the fantastic Fabulously Free in SL group gifts. As I’m sure you know, the Fab Free group is free to join and there’s a full (continually updated) group gift list here of all the free gifts. I’m wearing the Fab Free group gift skin from 7 Deadly Skins, the gift choker from West End, and the jacket/shirt combo gift by Northern Sky Creations.

7 Deadly Skins

The free Fab Free group gift skin at 7 Deadly Skins is a cute freckled female skin called Genie. She comes in a “lights” skin-tone pack with BOM layers, and Omega appliers for body and head.

West End

The free gift at West End for Fab Free group members is their “Simple Little Choker.” It has resize scripts, and a color change hud with 17 color choices.

Northern Sky Creations

Northern Sky Creations has a comfy red and black plaid jacket with a black shirt under it as a free group gift for Fab Free members. The top and jacket are all one piece and come in the following sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy.

The Forgotten Morrigan

The Forgotten Morrigan

Ghosts, goblins, mythical monsters, and the souls of the deceased are all said to come through to this plane of existence as the so called Veil thins. This group gift pose by IDK Poses inspired me to imagine other such entities that might cross over into our world during this mythically magical time. I also picked up one of several inexpensive finds on the ChicModa Spooktacular Hunt to help me bring this look to life. Keep reading for all the details about. Full credits will be listed at the end of the post.

IDK Poses

This pose and moon prop at IDK Poses is one of multiple group gifts available. The pose includes the bright crescent moon prop, and the static pose. The IDK Poses group has a small one-time join fee of 10 linden.

ChicModa 

ChicModa is having a fun hunt at their mainstore. Hidden around the grounds of the shop and inside the store are 9 total Halloween themed items priced at 50 linden each. There’s no group required, simply find the Halloween gift bags and purchase them for 50 linden. I found and am wearing the Tay Bloody Top. This Spooktacular Hunt at ChicModa will end October 31, so don’t wait!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly Kisses

At times the unexpected happens. One might even say it’s magic in the making. Pru and I have had some magical moments over these years. We got to experience one such moment recently. All we did was take a walk into our own yard. Before we knew it we were surrounded by butterfly after butterfly. We don’t know where they came from, but there they were. It was breathtakingly magical and wondrous all at the same time. Them butterfly kisses are oh so sweet, fast, and a bit ticklish. Nearly made me chuckle and I know Pru giggled.
We enjoyed the perfect moment that seemed to last forever. Even though it was over before we knew it. Good thing I was dressed for it. The Men Only Hunt recently started and I jumped at it. I was able to get this great fitting tank at Kartel and these awesome looking shorts from Odiren. They didn’t cost me a single Linden. Nothing like freebies, especially when it comes to Men stuff. The Men Only Hunt will last Until the end of August. You have plenty of time to grab up all the great gifts. They are not all free the prices range from 0L – 10L. That is still a steal if you ask me. So, GUYS get out there and go hunting. Lastly, take a minute to check out the free L’Homme Magazine group gift facial hair at Mister Razzor. It’s worth the effort.

This is for all the ghouls and darklings out there. I don’t know if I’m just not ready to let go of spooky season or what, but here I am as a little imp caught in a bell jar, and I am pleased as punch to share this look with you. I am a little bit in love with the freebie head and body wings by Ryuuzaki Lane, and I think they look completely creepy cute with the lingerie group gift set at Maai. If you keep reading I’ll give you the extra details about these freebies, otherwise there’s a full list of credits and links at the end. Thanks for being here!

Ryuuzaki Lane

I’m always a little bit Kitten and a little bit Imp on the inside. It’s moments like these when the Impish side gets to manifest. I couldn’t believe my luck when I stumbled across this adorable set of wings by Ryuuzaki Lane on the Marketplace for free. That’s right, they are 100% free. These are non-rigged so they can be manually resized. They are also low lag since there are no scripts. Lastly, the set comes in 2 color variations. I hope you love them as much as I do.

Maai

The lingerie set I have on is a recent group gift at Maai. It is a basic but pretty little set that is free to all Maai group members. The Maai group is also free to join. This gift comes in black only and is sized for Maitreya Lara. There’s also a group gift set of stockings that would go perfectly with this set.

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve Magic

Christmas Eve has always been my favourite.  There really is something magical and wonderful about it.  One of my most beloved traditions for Christmas Eve, is the fact that we all get together, gather around the table for hours and hours, have the best food and then after midnight, we bust out the cake and champagne before we roll ourselves contentedly into bed.   In order to be ready for tonight’s revelry, I of course needed to find the perfect fancy outfit to match the occasion.  And as I always say, if it’s free…even better!

Dazzling Delight

I popped over to the Cosmopolitan event, and found that they have a massive Christmas tree that is covered in gifts for group members.  Join the group for free, and then click on each little stocking hanging from the tree.  I got this gorgeous dress from Seniha (they actually have three dresses for you!).  I love the fact that the hem of the dress is dripping with sparkles!  So festive!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Tree Topper

Also hanging from the tree, is the little Christmas tree headband that I think is super cute.  It’s lighted as well, so you will be absolutely glowing tonight!  I also found the floating stars by Persefona that I added for an extra magical touch.  Both are delightfully free.   My finishing touch is my eye makeup which I also found hanging on the tree by VYC Femme.  The smoky eye comes in several different colour options on the applier, which is for both Omega and Catwa.

Well, my dearest readers, I hope that your Christmas Eve is filled with magic and delight.  I wish you all peace and much joy.

Sweet PeachHello Fab Free, I hope you’ve had a good start to your week so far. Today I wanted to share with you this sweet peach colored corset by Epoch and these cute dangle earrings from ClarityMoon. The corset by Epoch is their 10 linden Dark Side  event gift. I love that this corset is fully mesh and still has the look of laces in the back. I also like the pretty detail of the lace pattern in this inexpensive gift. Not to mention peach is such a nice color this time of year. The gift includes the corset in several mesh sizes, so there is certain to be one to fit almost anyone well.
Sweet Peach Close To go with the corset I added these cute group gift earrings from ClarityMoon. I think they compliment this sweet and cute look nicely. These earrings are also nicely detailed and include a color change hud with several options to change the color of the dangle-y hearts. Right now ClarityMoon has several current and past group gifts available to all group members, which makes the 50 linden join fee a steal of a deal!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I am a Wolf

Wolf

Hello again Fab Free! Glad you could visit! For this post I’ve got a fun group gift from Tres Blah, something pretty from Persefona, and a little bit of sparkle from Alaskametro. This simple yet playful style really makes me feel like summer. It gets hot hot hot where I am in the next few months and a tied-up tank top is definitely a wardrobe requirement for lazy afternoons when you want to keep cool.

This particular top is the FREE group gift from Tres Blah. It is fully mesh and comes in a wide range of sizes as well as several colors. It also appears a little shorter in this photo than it actually is due to the pose I’m using. The Tres Blah group has a 100 linden group join fee that grants you instant access to this gift, and several past gifts. Needless to say the one time fee is well worth it!

These pretty white roses nestled into a wreath around Pru’s head are the most recent group gift at Persefona. The flowery gift is FREE to all group members and the Persefona group is FREE to join. Flower accessories are so fun this time of year, it makes me want to be barefoot somewhere with soft cool grass! This head wreath can be re-sized via click menu for easy fitting.

Of course I had to add a little color in, these sparkly red nails are the On9 Anniversary Hunt prize from Alaskametro. This pretty nail polish set is FREE, and includes 5 glittery colors, appliers for fingers and toes, as well as Maitreya, Slink, and Omega options. You’ll definitely want to head over to Alaskametro and find the cupcake hunt item for this FREE manicure/pedicure set. The colors are too pretty to pass up!

Here are the Details, Enjoy!
